Curse of the Mistwraith (Wars of Light & Shadow) - book cover picture

This series is really wonderful! It's great in that it does not follow the typical fantasy formula. Rather, it's hero is unlike any other I've seen (suicidal, something of a recluse) whose life, everytime something starts to go his way, gets even worse. The villain is also unusual, being charming and charismatic and growing ever more evil (I won't tell anymore lest I spoil the plot). Most of the characters are well-rounded and dynamic, and the book has great continuity (you'll find that minor characters mentioned in book one will reappear in book four). Wurts has splendid descriptions, especially of the sea (a major setting throughout the series). She also has managed the fine art of comic relief, allowing humourous pasages to offset the more serious without making the entire book just a recitation of jokes. The rest of the series is even better, creating a wonderfully complex, thought out plot.

The Baby-sitter #01 (Babysitter) - book cover picture

A great book! Jenny Jeffers babysits Donny Hagen but she thinks the house is very creepy. Jenny is doing great until the phone rings. She hears a dry and raspy voice say "Hey babe, company's coming". She thinks it is just someone fooling around with her, until she finds out no one that she knows is making the calls. Or does she now the killer? Yes! She knows it very well! Read this book! I recommend getting Volume 1 through 4 because you get so addicted to the books. Of course, I dont wanna give away the ending!

Saving Dinner: The Menus, Recipes, and Shopping Lists to Bring Your Family Back to the Table - book cover picture

Leanne's new book makes dinner a no-brainer! Her emphasis on whole foods that are nutritious, recipes that are healthy and tasty, and balanced meal plans have made my life so much easier. No more fretting from week to week about what to fix. No more buying a jar of this "to use sometime" and then never using it. As was mentioned earlier, I am tossing most of my other cookbooks and just following the menus!

Montale's highest work and his most pointed poetry


Book title: Satura: 1962-1970
Rating: 5/5

Satura: 1962-1970 - book cover picture

Although not as popular as his first period ("La ossi di seppia" through "La bufera"), Satura is Montale's best work, and his lyrics are considerably more pointed and biting than they were before. I'd recommend this to anyone who is interested in Montale's work, and the "Selected Poems" published by New Directions is a helpful introduction to his first period. My personal favourites: "Xenia," "La repertorio." This is a facing-page translation from the Italian done by William Arrowsmith, which he'd published after his death although the footnotes were added by another critic.

A NIce Surprise!


Book title: Layover
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Layover - book cover picture

A very well written book from the mature woman's perspective. I felt very sorry for the mourning but (amusingly) clever protagonist and began to feel the precarious condition she found herself in. I wished her well throughout the book. BTW, the cover on the paperback is a bit misleading, if your expecting descriptive and frequent sex you may be disappointed. However, if you have a realistic expectations, it's a very erotic story.

No New Age blather here!

Ishmael: An Adventure of the Mind and Spirit - book cover picture

A reader from Dallas recently commented that he thought ISHMAEL was worthless new age garbage. ISHMAEL is not New Age spirituality. If it were, it wouldn't be used in History, Science, Anthropology, Philosophy, etc. courses all over the country. ISHMAEL is a synthesis of science and history and is down-to-earth. In fact, Daniel Quinn did not even offer the subtitle: "An Adventure of the Mind and Spirit." It was the publisher who wanted that. I question whether anyone who reads this book and calls it new age, bothered to really look at what it says. It's not new age at all.

A short yet comprehensive history of Ethiopia.

The Ethiopians: A History (Peoples of Africa) - book cover picture

Richard Pankhurst is one of the foremost modern authorities on Ethiopia. This book is a summary of many more that he has written on the subject. It has acceptable maps (these can almost always be improved) and a helpful chronological table. The prose flows easily and it is a pleasure to read.
My purpose in buying the book was to be able to have conversations regarding Ethiopia with a good friend who has just returned after spending 20 years there. He was impressed that I could ask him to tell me in more detail about the Tigray, or the Amharas or the Oromos, or the Italian occupation or the war with Eritrea!

A must for anyone who truly wants to cook Italian!

Binding: Hardcover
LA Vera Cucina Italiana: The Fundamentals of Classic Italian Cooking - book cover picture

I grew up in an Italian restaurant, cooking for my Southern Italian Father. This book has taught me a tremendous amount about seasoning and braising, just to name some examples. The recipes are detailed and well explained. They generally require some time to prepare. However, the result was outstanding in every recipe that I have tried. If you are willing to take a little time to prepare, you will find this book most rewarding. This is not a quick dinner book, but one that explores the true sophistication of Italian cooking. Be sure to try the Osso Buco and Involtine of Veal recipes early on!

"In all thy getting, get an understanding." This book gives you understanding in planning and managing your heirs inheritance.
